About

At College Possible, we believe in the power of education. We believe that our students and our supporters can change the country. We coach low-income students toward college graduation and they prove that when college is possible, anything is possible.

The College Possible Approach

Here’s how we open up opportunity to more bright, hard-working students.

High School Students Served

Coaches, serving as AmeriCorps members, guide high school students through all of the key aspects of preparing for college during after-school sessions for two hours twice a week. Over the course of their junior and senior years, students complete 320 hours of curriculum in a supportive group of college-bound peers.

The junior curriculum orients students to the college application process, provides extensive preparation for the ACT/SAT exam, introduces students to college life through campus tours and allows time for students to apply for summer enrichment opportunities.

The senior curriculum leads students through the college application process, assists students in applying for financial aid and scholarships and guides students through the transition to college.

College Students Served

After high school, College Possible students are coached through the transition to college and are supported all the way through college graduation. Their coaches, serving as AmeriCorps members, ensure they establish academic success skills, are connected to on-campus resources and are assisted in the financial aid and registration processes.

College Prep Talks

College Possible service members, along with current College Possible students when possible, introduce younger students to the possibilities of college and provide them with steps to prepare.
